The Capt looses his !@#$ today!

So I'm a week from hopping on a jet plane and heading back to the States. The Capt has been hopping himself trying to get everything done we need to have done before we move. One of the things...really the most important..is plane tickets. Now my hubby has a very organized soul when it comes to those things and likes to get started early so we can take care of any speed bumps. He started the "Quest for Dawn's perfect plane ride" weeks ago. First speed bump was the crazy ticket lady telling him no pets. He told her that yes, the pets would be flying with me. She told him, no, there is a pet embargo. He informed her that according to the website the embargo does not apply to service members during a move and for her to check again. Whaddya know!! Pets are a go. That was crazy fun! Telling me my pets had to go to new homes. Wahoo!! Fun! Then she tells him there are no straight flights from Seoul to Chicago. He informs her that we've already checked and yes, there are. For her to check again. Whaddya know! There is and she booked us. Now today. He has to go back to Not So Well Informed Lady and pick up our tickets. She tells him we have seats together (very important when your wife...your 15 year old and your 11 year old are traveling alone together) from here to Seoul but when we get there we have to wing it. He tells her, no, she needs to get us some seats cause he's not letting us go there and get stuck. He will be hours and hours away in case anything happens. She says there is nothing she can do and looks at him like you may leave now and kinda got snotty. He in turn morphed. He morphed into this....







He then informed her that his wife and children WOULD have seats and she would get them for him. He asked her where her boss was. The boss peeked around the corner and my hubby, The Capt, pointed at him and informed her that if she couldn't do it then he would cause he was not leaving without seats booked and confirmed. He then gave them "THE EYE"...

She got us three seats together. She checked to make sure the animals were also confirmed and as the earth shook and the heavens trembled the Capt came home to inform me of what happened. Middle Daughter was home and while he was telling us that we were taken care of and mumbling and walking off some of the mad we looked at him cause he is our very own superman. Our daughter whispered to me in awe "you married a doer mom! He gets things done!" Then we sighed cause he's cute when he's mad. A couple of minutes later he called the airlines to double check the ticket lady did what she said and he found out that, yep, she messed up on his ticket now...and The Son's. Oh happy day.

He will be back to visit her at 0'dark 30 tomorrow morning. Then he will inform her that our son will be on the same flight as him. Then he will give her this.....

You might be greeted at the gate with that wine! "Ms. Dawn, we've been waiting for you, please come with me!"

It IS irritating that those people who are supposed to know the business, are NOT. And the CUSTOMER has to do the re-checking and re-verifying! Argh - don't they have a self-check system of their own?

Growlllllll
